gradstudent: I'm not fully convinced by the 2020 Vamp Tutor here -- I'd rather run a more mana-intensive tutor that doesn't lose me the game if I can't immediately exploit it.
I could put in Snow-Covered Swamp s, but honestly I just foiled my basics here XD not doing that again lmao.

, there are enough Swamp substitutes. Instead of 9 Swamps and 1 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, you can run the following:
1x Snow-Covered Swamp
1x Cabal Pit
1x Ifnir Deadlands
1x Shizo, Death's Storehouse
1x Tomb of Urami
1x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
1x Vault of Whispers
1x Gemstone Caverns or Gemstone Mine
Of course, most of these are worse than swamps, but they turn Tainted Pact on

Mj3913: I wanted to avoid the standard Torment of Hailfire wins here, since it's not a big-mana deck and since the card's effect doesn't do me much good. Tainted Strike is now in :) and while I probably should swap to Snow-Covered Swamp s, I'm not too concerned TBH - other changes take precedence XD Thanks for the comment! If you like it I always appreciate +1s ;)
Renanbear: I do like that idea XD I haven't had major issues with drawing out yet (mostly because Zulaport Cutthroat etc usually win before I run out of cards), but I'll consider making that change eventually!
bushido_man96: Oh, trust me. He's the new MVP of my Hapatra deck, he's RIDICULOUS there!!! I'm so excited. He's also great in my Teysa Superfriends list. I'm buying three copies XD
Stalkton: Yeah, Serefin99 covered it :) The loop requires an undying creature plus any way to net one creature per "cycle": Genesis Chamber , Pawn of Ulamog , a second undying creature, et cetera. It's a fun loop! XD
Rambolicious_0: Hehe. Or get the ETB 9 times, then proliferate once. BOOM, HEADSHOT.
Perfect_Phyrexia: I like the username, seems fitting XD I'm really not a fan of Cabal Stronghold (you need 5 basic swamps before it is positive, and there's no real way to cheat on it), and while Deserted Temple is cute I'm not sure it's worth running just for that interaction. You're completely right that I should run some more life draining effects such as Coco Puffs, and I'll try to fit those in (as always, slots are tight). I'd rather run Diabolic Intent before Sidisi, Undead Vizier , though.
Thank you everyone for your comments! :D I'm trying to find space for all of these suggestions, so if you see anything worth cutting I'd love to hear it.

So, at this time I’m looking to axe Cast Down (a card that hasn’t done anything for me so far and appears underwhelming despite being a pet card) for Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , but I’m also looking to switch out my Swamp set for a Snow-Covered Swamp set with the intent of adding an Extraplanar Lens . Not sure the cut there. I haven’t even removed the Hypnotic Specter for Plaguecrafter but I could skip that and remove it for the Lens in theory. I also sort of want a place to put Dead of Winter (newly-spoiled so I cannot tag it yet) as well... and maybe Cabal Therapist ...?
Gosh, Modern Horizons is a dream.

Kinda feel like Torment of Hailfire belongs in here. Also, who can forget Tainted Strike ; it fits flavorfully and adds to the infect arsenal. That's really all I got, it seems like a well thought out list.

Hey, my concern with your deck is the manabase. If you don't have or can't afford the playable Dimir dual lands then you would be better off playing only black with Swamps. Right now the manabase is really bad with only two playable Dimir dual lands. You don't want Islands because these conflict too much with the majority of the black cards here especially one drop black Zombies.
Consider Sidisi, Undead Vizier as the Commander? Sidisi is good as a Commander as a repeatable tutor and Zombies give you plenty of sac fodder. Mono black can take advantage of Crypt Ghast , Extraplanar Lens (best with Snow-Covered Swamp ), Liliana of the Dark Realms , Cabal Coffers , Cabal Stronghold as repeatable ramp with Swamps. Dark Ritual , Cabal Ritual , Bubbling Muck , Songs of the Damned are more cards that can make ramp.
Mono black can also use reanimation which is good with Sidisi and Zombies: Animate Dead , Reanimate , Victimize , Buried Alive , Entomb , Patriarch's Bidding , Living Death , Liliana, Death's Majesty , Sheoldred. With mono black you can use Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Zombie Trailblazer with Filth as ways to make your Zombies unblockable. Good luck with your deck.
